PLANNED V.I. POSTAL SERVICE CUTBACKS ASSAILED

Let me assure you they are doing the same thing in the states. They really should consider changing their name from the Postal Service to just Postal.
I have in 25 years and for the last 10 years it has just become a bad joke. Who ever is making these decisions must own stock in UPS,FedX and Airborne. They fight giving the workers pay increases but have no problem giving management millions of dollars. If it were not for their workers management would be nothing.
The plan in the states is to have 70,000 clerks (20 yrs. and 55 yrs.old) retire this year; so far they don't have near that many. Their next step will be to fire as many as they can from this group and over work those left till they finally give in to the higher powers plan.
I had planed on working 30 years to draw the highest retirement;should I be able to make another 5 years these are the changes I expect to see.
a.Very little window service
b. A lot of service machines
c. Cluster box delivery in neighborhoods and cluster boxes in rural delivery
d.50 cent stamps
e. 5 day delivery
f. You will pay a yearly fee on your cluster box just like you do for a P.O. Box
g. Any other less service they can possibly think of.
h. The sell out of the Postal Service.
